A series first released in 2006 topping Netflix Charts of most-watched only means one thing; the series was a masterpiece. First-time viewers cannot fail but wonder why they did not watch it early enough when it was first released. It could be because it debuted fifteen years ago when technology was not quite advanced as it is right now. Avatar series ended with the third season, but recently, Netflix announced Avatar; The Last Airbender, a live-action series that will originate from the original series. The series will feature an array of actors from Asian and Indigenous backgrounds. However, the question is, will the live-action series live up to the example the first series set, being adored globally?
Avatar: The Last Airbender Release Date: When will it air?
A release date for when the remake will be debut is yet to be announced by both the show’s creator and the streaming channel. The show was announced in 2018, and fans expected filming to begin in either 2018 or 2019. However, the pandemic happened, and production had to be pushed to 2020. Filming had to postpone again when Covid took a turn for the worst until 2021, when it was announced that production was underway. The filming of the series is in Vancouver, Canada, and we expect the series will premiere to be in 2022 or late 2023.

Netflix revealed that the series protagonist, Aang, will be played by The Lost in Space actor Gordon Cormier. Kiawentiio Tarbell from ‘Anne with an E‘ will play Katara (Aang’s brother) as Ian Ousley plays Sokka. Dallas Liu will play Prince Zuko, and Daniel Dai Kim will portray Fire lord Zai, the ruler of the Fire Nation. Later on, Netflix announced cast members for Uncle Iroh as Paul Sun-Hyun, Lim Kay as Gyatso, and Ken Leung as Commander Zhao. Other casts are; Elizabeth Yu as Zuko’s sister, Tamlyn Tomita as Yukari, Yvonne Chapman as Avatar Kyoshi, Casey Camp Horinek as Sokka’s grandmother.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Storyline: What is it all about?
The plot of the upcoming live-action series is yet to be made sure, but the expectation is that it will follow the original plot, either loosely or closely. When the young Avatar Aang realizes that his power comes with many responsibilities, he flees from his hometown only for a storm to sweep him in the ocean. He seeks refuge in an iceberg near the south pole, the exact timeline when Lord Sozin, the ruler of the fire nation, carries out a genocide in the Air Nation in the hopes of killing the Avatar. A century later, Aang is revived by Katara and Sokka. We expect the live-action series to pick up from the conclusion of the original series or its sequel. It could focus on the redemption arc of Azula and the people who will be involved in Azula’s journey.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Trailer: When can we see it?
There isn’t much information on the live-action series; therefore, we have yet to get a trailer for the upcoming tv series. Nevertheless, once filming is done and the series nears its debut, the trailer will stream on Netflix and YouTube. However, you can catch up on the three seasons of the original Avatar series that are already out on Netflix. Netflix also has an array of similar series such as The Legend of Korra, Inside Job, and Blood of Zeus that you can stream.
